Kate Hudson, Famous Nepo Baby, Weighs In On Nepo Baby Debate

Kate Hudson weighed in on the nepotism child debate that’s taken over Hollywood and headlines, particularly since New York Journal declared 2022 “The Year of The Nepo Baby.”

Hudson, who’s the daughter of singer Invoice Hudson and actor Goldie Hawn (who counts Kurt Russell as her longtime accomplice), informed The Independent in a brand new interview that she doesn’t “really care” about “the nepotism thing.”

A nepo child, brief for nepotism child, is a well-known determine whose success doubtless benefited from having well-known mother and father.

“I look at my kids and we’re a storytelling family. It’s definitely in our blood,” Hudson stated within the profile printed on Saturday.

“People can call it whatever they want, but it’s not going to change it. I actually think there are other industries where it’s [more common]. Maybe modeling? I see it in business way more than I see it in Hollywood.”

“Sometimes I’ve been in business meetings where I’m like, ‘Wait, whose child is this? Like, this person knows nothing!’” she stated. “I don’t care where you come from, or what your relationship to the business is ― if you work hard and you kill it, it doesn’t matter.”

Hudson’s place is decidedly much less defensive than different Hollywood stars, like Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis, who’s the daughter of “Psycho” actor Janet Leigh and “Some Like It Hot” star Tony Curtis, stated that the “nepo baby” dialog was “designed to try to diminish and denigrate and hurt.”

“I’ve tried to bring integrity and professionalism and love and community and art to my work,” the actor wrote on Instagram Friday. “I am not alone. There are many of us. Dedicated to our craft. Proud of our lineage. Strong in our belief in our right to exist.”
